Thank you for helping us secure student safety here at Tuscany Heights Elementary! We have communicated arrival and drop-off procedures, and I am proud of the receptive response from our parents, staff, and students. We want everyone safe!
Please join us Feb. 3rd for our K-2 Leadership & PTA Night. Flyer Attached!
Don’t forget about the community run prior to our Run for the Heights! It could earn our PTA money!!! We love to spend money on our students and instructional resources that they need! So, here is an opportunity for our PTA, who is always very generous with supporting student needs, to earn $1,000.
“Attached you will find a flier for the Red Dress 5K Fun Run & Walk Methodist Stone Oak Hospital is sponsoring on Saturday, February 7, 2015. In addition to being a great opportunity to get active with your peers, NEISD Employee Benefits has been advised that Methodist Stone Oak Hospital will be giving $1,000 to the PTA of the school with the most participants! To ensure your school receives credit, make sure everyone who registers from your campus includes the school name on the registration link (2nd page).”
This sounds like a great warm up to our Run for the Heights that will be coming February 28th! Let’s get healthy!!!!

Would you like to see our principals run the Fun Run dressed as a Super Hero? Would you like to get prepared for the 5K? You can do both by completing the 28-day Activity Challenge. If we have at least 350 T.H.E. students complete the daily activity log AND register for the Fun Run for 5K, then our principals will run the Fun Run dressed as Super Heroes!!! Let's synergize and reach our goal!! Start Monday, Jan 26 in order to be finished by Feb 23. Turn in the completed forms to the front office.
Are you not able to make it to Run For The Heights? You can still be a "Spirit Runner" for only a $10 donation. Contribute to Run For The Heights while you sleep in for Tusky!! These 100% taxable donations will still count towards the registration contests! (No t-shirts or goody bags provided for spirit runners.)
We are looking forward to a great event! See you on Feb 28th!!
If you’ve been waiting to settle in to the new school year before getting involved, or maybe you’re new to our campus, wait no longer! PTA could still use your help! We’re a fun, supportive group who love making a difference on our campus, and we’re looking for volunteers to fill the following chairs:
Cafeteria – Legislative Action
We’re also looking for a volunteer to help with school pictures in the spring. If you would like more information or have any questions about any of the volunteer opportunities please don’t hesitate to ask. I’d be happy to visit with you.
